High Steppin' into the crux of Exoduster.


This route stays dry, which as NRG climbers know is very rare for a climb of this grade.

This climb is popular and it deserves it.

Climb the face up pockets to a thin rail you have to layback and do a long move up to a crimp and continue up easier ground to the anchors.

4 Bolts to Cold-Shuts (rusted and nasty looking).

Lots of fun. Crux is between the 2nd and 3rd bolt, if you've got little fingers it might be a bit easier, but I had to stand up and fiddle around with a double undercling to make the next move (go with your right, I went with left and barely stuck the move after a barndoor cause I'm an idiot). The diagonal, shallow rail is a bit hard to work with but there are better spots - feel it out if you can. Hitting the "oh thank god" pocket above it is nice.

I think it's certainly worth climbing due it's grade/dryness. Pretty pumpy, I enjoyed it.
